Here is Stephen's card. It is rather simple. Hope he likes it. I expect he will like the piece of paper that is inside better.
I tried several times to do Maddie's card. This is the final card. I kept it very simple. It is a 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card.
And------ Here is a picture of the little purse that I made for her. I love the way it turned out. I was able to fussy cut the fabric so that the animals were front and center on both sides. Love the result. I think that the finished size was about 7" x 9". I am looking forward to trying some other sewing/quilting projects in the near future.
